Data Storage Consultancy
In todays world, storage technologies are constantly evolving, so choosing
the correct data storage technology that integrates smoothly and
efficiently with your existing network, as well as meeting current
UK and EU data compliance legislation, is critical.

more disks, so SQS have a number of in house data storage experts, able to offer a free and impartial consultancy service, supporting
your efforts in satisfying business objectives, delivering required
service levels, whilst managing costs by recommending the right strategies and
solutions for all of your data storage equirements.
Network Attached Storage
As well as introducing our own range of SQS ProVault NAS solutions, we have developed relationships with a select number of NAS manufacturers and distributors such as OnStor, QNAP, Infrant and Proware, each of whom offer quality solutions with exceptional functionality at sensible prices to compliment our own products. Such tie-ins enable us to offer the full range of NAS solutions to meet your every storage need.
To provide our engineers with the best possible environment for the assembley, repair, servicing and testing of storage devices, we have a fully fitted, on-site workshop specifically designed to take into account all of the necessary anti-static precautions required when dealing with sensitive electronic equipment.
Our workshop is equipped with multiple test workstations including all of the latest manufacturer test software as well as using bespoke customised software enabling us to see every event in real time, a large stock of spares and test media as well as a vast library of technical manuals and procedures.
To provide you with the best possible service and to minimise you or your customers down time, we aim to turn around all servicing and repair work within 3 to 5 days.
To provide you with the best possible service, if your drive is required urgently we can ensure that it is given our best attention and a priority assessment.
Should you require a faster turnaround time we also offer a 24hr Gold Service, which means that your drive will be ready for shipping or collection within 24hr's of being received at our offices/workshop.
Full 1 year warranty
So confident are we of our engineers' expertise and knowledge of tape and optical back-up devices, that we have raised the bar on the industry standards by reflecting the quality of their work in offering longer warranties on all repairs and refurbished drives than our competitors.
Next Day Delivery
In order to get your drive to you in the minimal amount of time, we operate a next day delivery service. Should you require your unit before a specific time in the day, we can also ensure that your device is shipped on a pre 10:30 or pre 12:00 delivery enabling you or your engineer to have the unit on his arrival at site.

No Fix No Fee
We at SQS Ltd strive to provide you with a quality of service second to none, which is why we offer a "No Fix No Fee" option on all drive repairs.
If one of your Tape Drives, Autoloaders or Lib raries cannot be fixed at the standard repair price or is beyond economical repair, and the alternative solutions are cost prohibitive to you or your customer, we are happy to return it to you at no cost to yourselves. After all, why should you pay for a service if that service cannot be delivered?
We are proud that not only do our customers recognise the
quality of our work and service, but Quantum the worlds
largest tape drive manufacturer, now recommends us as their
preferred out of warranty repair centre. Quantum now also supports the older Seagate and Certance drives following their recent acquisition of Certance.
HP Factory Trained Staff
At SQS, we believe in the importance of quality in both service and engineering. In order to attain the high quality standards expected by our customers, not only do we recruit the best industry engineers available but they are then factory trained by HP at their specialist facility in Lyon.
All training includes the full range of units, from small single units through to the large, multiple drive autoloaders and tape libraries.
Veritas / Symantec Preferred Partner
We are pleased to confirm our partnership with storage software specialist Veritas now owned by Symantec.
As data back-ups become increasingly vital to users, so the requirements of your back-up software become more specialised.
Whilst the specification of your back-up device may fulfil your requirements, the way in which your drive interfaces with the rest of your network is of key importance. Not only should your software run seamlessly and quickly, it should also be user friendly and cost effective.
Veritas not only provide cost-effective back-up software which is tailored to meet your requirements but also have a support program second to none.
HP Authorised Re-seller
We at SQS are proud of our continued relationship with HP as an authorised re-seller.
Our authorised re-seller status enables us to offer you the keenest pricing on not only back-up devices and media but HP's entire range of products.
